DJs in the Philippines Now Required to Present Yearbook Before Performing

DJs in the Philippines will now be required to present a yearbook before they are allowed to perform in clubs, according to a surprise announcement that has sent shockwaves through the nightlife industry. You read that correctly. A yearbook.

According to sources close to the Philippine Bureau of Music and Entertainment, this new requirement was put in place to ensure that only the most qualified and experienced DJs are given the opportunity to entertain partygoers and clubbers. The yearbook, which will be given to club owners and event organizers upon request, will include a detailed record of the DJ’s academic past.

According to John Sedano, a popular DJ in Manila, “Having a yearbook is like a badge of honor among DJs. It shows that you’ve been around the block and that you’re a respected member of the community.” John Sedano showed us his yearbook, and we have to say, it was pretty impressive. There were photos of him in his high school, testimonials from classmates, and even a message from his English teacher. “You’ll be a great DJ someday”

A spokesperson for the Bureau of Music and Entertainment said of the new requirement, “We understand that DJs are an important part of the Philippine music scene, and we want to make sure that only the best and most talented performers are given the chance to entertain our citizens; requiring a yearbook is just one way we can ensure that high standards are met.”

The new requirement, however, has caused some bafflement and even outrage among the DJ community. Many people have taken to social media to express their shock, with one Twitter user writing, “A yearbook? Ano to high school? Baka next thesis na rin?”Others have expressed concern that this new requirement will only make it more difficult for aspiring DJs to break into the industry, as they may not have enough testimonials to fill a yearbook.

According to renown female DJ, Jade Dee, it’s all about building community. “We all come from different backgrounds and have different stories to tell,” she said. “But when we share our yearbooks with each other, we get to see a different side of each other. It helps us connect on a deeper level.”

Despite the mixed reactions, it appears that the yearbook requirement is here to stay, at least for the time being. So, if you’re a DJ in the Philippines looking to perform in clubs, get your yearbook ready – it might just be the ticket to your next gig.

Who knows, maybe in the future, yearbooks will be required of all performers, from singers to comedians to magicians. It’s a brave new world out there, people!
